I don't know about you but at the start of a new year I feel like de-cluttering and re-organising everything, including my embroidery floss stash! It's a bit of a mess right now but I'm definitely going to sort it out in the next few weeks. I keep my DMC skeins, sorted by colour (well that's the idea anyway!) in zip lock bags in a cute cabinet with drawers (available at IKEA). My Sublime Stitching floss is kept in one of the drawers as well and I have a shoebox full of Anchor floss too. My older DMC floss, on cardboard bobbins, is stored in a couple of plastic floss boxes.
Last week Lisa posted this original floss holding alternative on Flickr:
A photo album! Not for the larger floss stashes obviously.
So what is your top Tip for organising your Embroidery floss? Do you sort by colour, number or type of floss. Do you keep your embroidery threads in shoe boxes, bags, bowls, fancy cabinets or on shower curtain rings? Perhaps you have an especially clever way of taking your floss with you on holiday?
